Global Mapper is a low cost, fully functional GIS application from Blue Marble Geographics. In this daylong workshop we will explore some core functionality of the software with a particular emphasis on LiDAR and point cloud processing.
The workshop will begin with a basic introduction to Global Mapper that will include navigating the key components of the interface; file and layer management; importing and export data; creating and editing vector data; and working with raster layers.
In the afternoon session, we explore the LiDAR and terrain analysis capabilities of the software. We will demonstrate basic LiDAR filtering and editing techniques; automatic ground point detection and reclassification; terrain surface creation; various analysis procedures including watershed analysis, view shed analysis and cut and fill optimization and volume calculation; vector extraction from classified LiDAR points; and 3D visualization options.
This workshop will offer the opportunity for hands-on participation. Attendees are encouraged to bring a windows-based laptop computer to the session. A trial version of Global Mapper, a temporary license file, and all of the required data files will be provided.

Maps on the Hill, supported by the Utah Geographic Information Council (UGIC) and AGRC, will be held on March 1st, 2016. This event, in its fifth year, is a good opportunity for students and professionals to share maps, mapping tools, and mapping projects with elected officials, fellow practitioners, and the public.
Who should participate:
Individuals: Anybody who makes a map through their work or education.
Organizations: An organization that has worked on multiple mapping projects.
Maps on the Hill Event:
The map display event will be held on March 1st, in the Capitol Rotunda from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm, with set-up time beginning at 9:00am. We request that at least one participant is present to discuss each map entry throughout the display event.
You can present hardcopy maps, interactive digital maps (you’ll need to provide a means to show it on a computer), or both.
The focus of the event is interesting maps or map technology projects that are applicable to a wide audience. While displays can be on any appropriate topic, presentations that may be of interest to decision makers are strongly encouraged. Marketing of specific product and services is discouraged.
